Description


Description

It is not very often we would auction a "bundle" or a "pair" of anything, but this double DJ offering has 4 clean clean promo labels, all vinyl is an impeccable Mint minus. Both discs carry the EMI promo mail-out pasted to the back cover of the birth-sleeves. From the very heart of the groundbreaking Norman Whitfield era this 23 record offering should not in our opinion, be split.

Check out those EMI promo reviews on the back of each cover, capturing the very essence of the Norman Whitfield / Temptations marriage.

These pasted-up promo info sheets are highly coveted by serious TMG collectors, they are elusive, as not many actually left the building, it was an in-office exercise done by hand, and reserved for radio station DJ's for info to read out on air, including impending release dates.

This pairing highlights an important transformation of The Temptations style and of course underlines the genius of a man who changed the face of The Motown Sound.

An irresistible package for any Motown scholar to want to own.

Listen, read, admire and enjoy.
